• 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons large-curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 3/4 to 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying


Mix the eggs and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add the cheeses, 3/4 cup of flour, and salt. Process until consistency is smooth. Heat a nonstick frying pan and pour in a coating of vegetable oil. To test the thickness of the batter, drop about 4 tablespoons into the pan and fry a few minutes on each side. If the batter seems too liquidy, add flour until the consistency is correct. Drop batter in by tablespoonfuls and fry on each side until golden.

Makes about 10 latkes.
